Really charming and peaceful spot. My boyfriend and I stayed for a night in early October and we really enjoyed it. We're from the east coast, so watching the sun set on the Pacific from the balcony was a treat! It's not near anything, but that's nice because it keeps it kind of private and it's an easy drive to...

Soooo glad all of our typical go-to chains were either already booked, or too expensive! Otherwise, we would not have experienced this slice of heaven! If I had not found this place while searching for a chain alternative, I would never have stayed here just by driving past. The 'Motel' sign out front looks 'rustic', and would have told me...

We love this quaint little themed motel. It's right off the highway (although we never hear road noise) and the rooms are adorable. We stayed in the whaler room this time and it was pretty amazing. Love all the unique decor. It's a smaller room and doesn't have a balcony but it does have a huge bay window to see...

Amazing location, away from the crowds. Charming rooms, very clean and well kept. Beautiful ocean views on an uncrowded beach. We listened to music, watched a couple movies, and sipped wine while watching fishing boats as the sun set. Great price, good company; one of the most memorable places you can stay on the Oregon coast.

Location is awesome....not far from Depot Bay or Lincoln City. We go to the casino & outlet mall there. Best ever breakfast is Coffee House in Newport! Private balcony for wine &...

There aren't actually too many good beachfront motels in Newport Oregon, most people that want easy beach access stay further north or further south, but Moolack shores is one of the few in Newport. All the rooms have a theme and the property is older but lovingly maintained. The beach access is fantastic and it is a beautiful spot with...

We have been staying at Moolack for years. Always a nice quiet stay. Beautiful ocean views and a quick private beach access. Managers are always friendly and helpful. Only drawback is you have to travel to restaurants.

My husband and I spent our Honeymoon here and now our Anniversary 33 years later and many times in between and it always makes us feel like we're in our own cozy home with amazing ocean views, fireplaces, some kitchens, great access to the beach. It's not fancy, but clean, charming, and the people who work there take care of...
